Compose A Form In Another Database

Button : Application request

Asks if user wishes to continue, the saves audit trail information for the
transaction, and launches the appropriate DB compose form

Note: Notice where the @Compose is located in the button formula (at the end
!!). This was necessary so the File save, window close would execute on the
initiating form (Request router), not on the target compose form command.
TEMP := @Prompt([YESNO]; "Create application request"; " Do you wish to
compose an application development request for a *NEW* application?? It will
be routed to the Development Team for evaluation. They will contact you
about this request within the next x hours/days");
REM;
REM " If No, then exit formula, else - continue ";
@If(TEMP = 0; @Return(""); "");
REM;
REM " Set request Type and Formname for audit trail ";
FIELD Type := "request";
FIELD Form := "Audit form";
REM;
REM " Save audit document so user does not have to do it";
@Command([ViewRefreshFields]);
@Command([FileSave]);
@Command([FileCloseWindow]);
@Command([FileCloseWindow]);
REM;
REM " Compose appropriate DB form & not add DB to desktop ";
REM " Note: They will need to save composed doc and exit from DB view "
@Command([FileOpenDatabase]; "yourserver" : "General\\Reqstdb.nsf"; ""; ""; "";
"1");
@Command([Compose]; ""; "Request Form")
